Summer is just about over. How much time did you spend in the sun?
It wouldn’t be summer if you didn’t want to spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather. Come to think of it, Fall, Winter and Spring have their fair share days of sunny days as well. Whether you’re spending your outdoor time playing sports, gardening or just hanging out enjoying the fresh air, you’re definitely exposing yourself to more sunlight than you would if you were indoors, and the truth is sunlight is not without its advantages. Exposure to the sun is known to increase serotonin levels and higher serotonin levels are known to lift your mood by increasing feelings of happiness and well-be
Exfoliating treatments aren’t only about slathering scrubs with walnut shells and fine diamond crystals. Thanks to the genius of Dr. Dennis Gross, we have a new body towelette that addresses an often ignored skincare issue: bumpy keratosis pilaris (also called “chicken skin”).
Yes, it’s not a sexy name by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s something my arms do suffer from. Keratosis pilaris is characterized by rough bumpy spots on the skin, which are frequently found on the arms and thighs. And they’re not easy to get rid off. Aesthetically displeasing, it is quite harmless but unsightly. After all, who wants rough skin on arms and thighs? Bare shoulders would be totally unbecoming.
Keratosis pilaris affects about 50% of the world’s population and is hereditary. Therapy can eliminate the bumps but the treatment is almost always exfoliation, and typically this is in the form of vitamin A, peels, scrubs or glycolic acid.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Smoothing Body Towel ($36) really came to my rescue to reduce my keratosis pilaris. The box filled with 8 treatments (individually wrapped body towels) will help you substantially reduce, if not eliminate, the issue. Each towel is pre-soaked with glycolic, mandelic, salicylic and azelaic amino acids. It also contains witch hazel. The towels exfoliate, tone, and firm the skin using a raised texture that buffs away unsightly bumps. Daily exfoliation with the towels will give you brighter, smoother, and clearer skin.
It took two boxes at $36 each for me to reduce my chicken skin issue to satisfaction: 16 towels in total. The towels are so easy to use, and make excellent travel companions too. What’s also great about these smoothing body towels is that they have a variety of uses: while keratosis pilaris is one of the targets, the others include acne, discolorations on decollete, and dry skin.
If you suffer from these pesky problems, this box of towels is an excellent investment, and you’ll be more than thankful you did.
